Hello everyone! I am so excited for another year at Classical School!

I started attending Classical School as a third grader when the school first opened. I graduated in 2005 and went to Appleton North High School, graduating in 2009. During my senior year I participated in a Co-op program and was blessed to work as a student teacher with Senora Lariviere, teaching second and fifth grade Spanish.

I attended Wisconsin Lutheran College where I majored in Elementary Education and Spanish and graduated in 2013 with suma cum laude honors. I also received certification to teach Spanish in a K-8 capacity. My first two years of teaching were spent on the south side of Milwaukee in a choice school called St. Martini with a population of 85% Hispanic students. There, I was able to continue my partnership with the Center for Urban Teaching (CfUT) and Schools That Can Milwaukee (STCM) through various professional development opportunities and collaborations. In the summer of 2015 I worked more closely with CfUT as a co-leader of one of their summer school sites. I have been extremely blessed by my experience working in the inner city, but am extremely grateful to be back in Appleton and at my alma mater!

I am currently one class away from competing my masters through Augustana University.

On a very different note, this December will mark my fifth anniversary with my husband, Rob, whom I married in Classical’s very own auditorium! Our daughter, Evelina, is two years old and our son, Miles, was born this past April.

Aside from teaching, I absolutely love traveling and have been to 19 countries, most frequently to Algeria where I worked with the Saharawi Refugees living in camps there. Other favorites include Spain, Ireland, and Israel.

I’m so grateful to be part of such a great team and look forward to continuing my journey at Classical!
